Lowland League Supporters' Team of the Season

Recommended Posts

A wee something from Ronan Alexander, one of the slfl.co.uk team (whose account is still awaiting approval).

Quote

Hi folks, I’ve had an idea to make a Fans Lowland League Team of the Season.

How it’ll work is I’ll come up with 4 candidates for each position, using this thread to help guide our thinking. Then we'll create a twitter poll for each position on the Lowland League twitter feed, and the most votes wins.

I’ll take your suggestions, if you give me a little reason why or a statistic to help, along with my own research, to come up with the candidates. Hope you like the sound of it and will appreciate any feedback or tips to make it better. The final team will be revealed toward the end of May.

Hope you're all up for getting involved and thanks for all your support this season! 

 

Michael

For me, based on the teams I've been able to see semi-regularly this season, it'd be...

GK: Ryan Marshall (BSC)
DEF: Connor Greene (East Stirlingshire)
DEF: Kyle Fee (Civil Service Strollers)
DEF: Andy Grant (East Stirlingshire)
DEF:  Craig Stevenson (Spartans)
MID: David Maskrey (Edinburgh Uni)
MID: Stevie Murray (BSC)
MID: Dale Baxter (Selkirk)
MID: Jamie Dishington (Spartans)
FWD: Sean Brown (Cumbernauld Colts)
FWD: Jack Smith (BSC)

Obviously I see BSC every week so I'm more inclined to put those guys in - before we get into claims of wild bias (mea culpa), but the others have all really impressed me when I've seen them. Notable mentions to Ross McNeil & Kieran Gibbons (EK), David Banjo & Daryl Healy (Selkirk), Andy Rodgers & Paul Sludden (Shire), Ross Jardine (Whitehill), Lewis Bonar (UoS) who also impressed me.

Who makes your team?

Can't argue with any of these choices. How about a Manager for team of the season? My vote would go to Stephen Swift. He's taken BSC from mid table mediocrity to a top 3 finish in one season, add to that 2 cup finals and a cup semi and with one of those finals still to come a chance to finish the season with some silverware. Not a bad introduction to the Lowland League.

Moaning git of the year 

Swift and his baldy side kick are the worst since Lauchlan departed East Kilbride

You see a moaning git. I see a winning mentality.  You are right though. His sidekick is bald.

I’m not sure VoL would agree :)

If a striker scores a hat trick against you, you can still admire his skill ;)

He should apply to be the SFA compliance officer. He certainly knows his way around the rulebook. And isn't afraid to be unpopular.

Ramsay from EK?? It’s team of the season, he only signed in Feb, and spent a lot of time as a sub. Are you a relative?? :)

First of all, they're haha and Super Tappy never conceded 5 at home against a rival. McCormack deserves it hands down, was one of our beat players. You obviously missed the games where we played you

I’ve seen you guys three times this season and thought he was decent, loads of decent players in the league so hard to just pick 11. I was looking for your team of season but canny see it anywhere????

I'm still debating who to put in. I don't want to be bias but after watching us go on that unbeaten run it would be very heavily Shire favoured.
